A great company, but...

Sales Associate/Customer Service (Former Employee)
Slidell, LA

I worked at Harbor Freight Tools part-time for less than a year

ProsBetter than average starting pay and good benefits. A good company to work for if the management was any good.

ConsThe management at the store at Slidell, LA wouldn't work with second job schedule. Told me she would, but as soon as schedule was made she told me to figure it out myself. Very disrespectful and rude.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement needs some kind of basic management skills. You cannot treat people like dirt and expect them to have any loyalty or be good employees. People skills are important.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
